Send-better-email-dude

The question though, is it best to use emails? Are you actually wasting people's time? Are you doing email more efficiently than others and need to dumb down how you approach emailing? Here are some key points I got out of the infographic below. ... Continue Reading

Verses: An iOS Bible Memory Verses App [App Review]

Verses App Logo

Verses is an iOS app with a noble mission: To help us memorize Scripture. I'll be honest that I'm not nearly as focussed on memorizing Scripture as I was when I was a kid.

Tech-Free Dinner Time with a Twist

dolmio-pepper-hacker1

We had to make a new rule at our house: No devices at the dinner table. We've always guarded our family time around meals. We've always strived to avoid dinner around the TV. Sure, there are exceptions, like pizza and a movie. You know, fun stuff like that. So when we began to feel screens creeping into our normal meal times, we had to put an end to it. Everyone is following along and there are consequences to any violators. I think the key to our success, is that we acted on it before it ... Continue Reading

Google-Responsive-Mobile---CM

For years we've been saying that church, ministry, and nonprofit websites need to be mobile-friendly. Up until now, we've been preaching this kind of web design from a practical perspective. More and more people are accessing the Internet outside of the PC desktop environment by using their smartphones and tablets, so having a mobile-friendly website—or as we often say, responsive—has become more and more important.

The first product to reach launch phase is a ... Continue Reading
